August holiday cottages in Windermere
When you think of the Lake District, you can’t help but think of Windermere – it’s the largest lake in England, and has over 10,000 boats registered to it. Phew! If you’re a novice in the water, no worries: there are dozens of activity companies and tour operators in and around the area, offering everything from gentle cruises on steamers to lengthy lessons in canoeing. Don’t want to get wet? Pony treks and ghyll scrambling await those with older children, while little ones can get lost in the World of Beatrix Potter.
